Yveltal-GX from SM6 ‘Forbidden Light!’

Following right on the hoofs of Xerneas-GX, Yveltal-GX has now also been revealed from SM6 Forbidden Light! The set will release in Japan on March 2nd and in America on May 4th. Thanks goes to Michael S. and Sean T. for the translation!

Yveltal-GX – Darkness – HP180
Basic Pokemon

[D] Absorb Life: 20 damage. Heal from this Pokemon the same amount of damage you did to your opponent’s Active Pokemon.

[C][C][C] Evil Sonic: 100 damage. This attack’s damage isn’t affected by Weakness or Resistance.

[D] Death Count GX: If your opponent’s Active Pokemon has exactly 4 damage counters on it, it is Knocked Out. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)

When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.

Weakness: Lightning (x2)
Resistance: Fighting (-20)
Retreat: 2

Like our number thirteen, the number four is considered an unlucky number in Japan and China because it sounds like shi (死 – death). Japanese speakers have two readings for the number four, shi and yon. They try to avoid using the death-associated one.

Is it just me or are both Pokemon-GX pretty underwhelming? At least their rainbow rares will look pretty…
